Oral health research is essential for understanding the links between oral health and diseases in the body. By studying the risk factors, preventive measures and treatments for problems such as dental infections, tooth grinding and poor oral health, we can improve diagnosis, treatment and oral care products, and increase understanding of the relationship between oral health and general health.
